Georgetown College men's basketball did not mess around this week in either game. After holding University of Pikeville to just 49 points, the Tigers allowed University of Virginia College at Wise just 11 more than that. The No. 12 Tigers rolled off another huge win, 94-60, at Davis-Reid Alumni Gym Saturday. They improve to 19-5 and 9-3 in the conference, heading into the final three weeks.
"We had to respond to the adversity we faced this past week on the road," said GC coach Chris Briggs. "I think they guys did a great job of that on our home court. Now we have to do it when we go on the road."
The Tigers have six more games total, five inside conference, including a rematch against No. 8 Lindsey Wilson College on Senior Day in two weeks.
"We can't look ahead or think about anything but the task that is at hand," Briggs said. "We go to Shawnee State next Saturday and how we played this week needs to be how we play in Portsmouth."
It is Homecoming for the Bears and so the tip for the men's game is set for 4:30 pm instead of the usual 4 pm.
LWC and GC entered the day in a tie for first in the MSC, but the Blue Raiders lost 77-76 to University of the Cumberlands. Since it was the only conference game they played all week, LWC is at 7-4 and thus a game and a half back of Georgetown.
Saturday, the Tigers opened a 14-0 lead and never looked back. The lead ballooned the 37 points three different times in the second half.
Allan Thomas came off the bench to lead with 21 points, including five threes (5-of-10). Garel Craig also had his shooting rhythm for 19 points. Aaron Morris finished with 14 and Johonne Hamilton had 10.
Josh Jordan led the Cavaliers (8-11, 5-7) with 20 points, while Travis Berry chipped in with 18.
